Parks And Recreation Season 6: A Look Back And A Look Ahead
Also coming in Season 6 is a new development in the Pawnee-Eagleton rivalry with the show introducing more of the snooty-town's government officials. Yep, there will be doppelgängers. Leslie's counterpart (this time, cause we'll never forget Parker Posey's Lindsay Carlisle Shay) will be played by Kristen Bell which, if you've seen Party Down, couldn't be more perfect. Joining Bell as the the rest of the Parks and Rec team are Billy On The Street Eichner (Eagleton's Donna), Sam Elliott (Eagleton's Ron), June Diane Raphael (Eagleton's April) and the Eagleton Tom is a still a secret because the Michael Schur doesn't want to spoil the gag. My guess is a very stylish robot. I have no idea.
Making an appearance during the one-hour season premiere in England are Heidi Klum and Peter Serafinowicz and they both also made videos talking about their turns on Parks and Rec for “London" (Parts 1 and 2). Klum plays the woman who beats out Leslie for the Women in Government award and Serafanowicz guests as a possible catch for Ben's charity initiative at Sweetums as well as a kindred spirit to Andy. That should be fun. Speaking of Andy and "London," Chris Pratt is largely the reason why the NBC comedy filmed a few episodes in the U.K. because the star landed a leading role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and this way he was able to do both. The cast, including Pratt, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott and Nick Offerman, also made videos discussing what it was like to shoot the series in another country.
Oh, and if you want to know why Andy is so fit (not Pratt, GotG is why he looks like this), here's a clip where he explains it to Ben. Plus, we get a look at Serafinowicz' Lord Covington.
Parks and Recreation returns with the special one-hour sixth season premiere, “London" (Parts 1 and 2), on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC. Created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, the series stars Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt and Rob Lowe.
